Hi all,I have this hand bag. It's a very handy thing (pun intended) that can hold my entire EDC, so I can keep my pockets empty. I once got accused of wearing a woman's purse, although this type of…Continue

   Any experience on the weight of the Saddleback bags? I seem to remember reading somewhere that they are rather heavy. I can believe this as they sound like they are built like a tank.

   Just wanting to put that one more piece of info into my decision.

Oh, also handed out a bunch of SBL business cards, too!

Got some compliments on my tobacco large classic briefcase today (new they'd never seen it).  One guy knew exactly what it was, and later showed me his Saddleback wallet.  I then had to show him MY SBL wallet, and card case, and gadget sleeve.  ;-)

Just listed an extra large SBL vintage bag on eBag. This may be the last in that series of auctions. It is for one day.

for some reason there is not an option to leave a photo in the discussion forum so l will put them here for Matt .

Comment by Herb Munson on September 8, 2012 at 3:35pm

Way back in 2005, when Saddleback was just getting started, I began to help Dave sell bags on eBay. And, starting now, Dave has given me my old job back to sell the rest of his vintage items (left over from those days that have been sitting in our warehouse) on eBay. These bags are special because a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF) to help them develop an artificial pancreas to help my thirteen year old granddaughter Grace and others that suffer from Type 1 diabetes. First come, first serve, while they last!

"Closed on Thanksgiving Day"

It's not even Halloween, and...I'm already seeing a lot of internet "business" posts about retailers not opening on Thanksgiving Day, and a bunch on which store will be open on Thanksgiving Day.  That's the US Thanksgiving Day.Anybody else old enough to remember when the retailers open on Thanksgiving were liquor stores and Standard Oil stations?  I mean in states without blue laws.See More
